Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Date Submitted: 08-Feb-2013
Job Description: The University of Gothenburg obtained the right to examine within all available teachers’ education in languages in connection with the new teachers’ programme that started in 2011. The subject of English thus expects to see a large expansion within both its teacher trainee education and its courses in further education for teachers, as well as within our co-operation within the Nordic Masters Programme. The subject seeks to put together a team of competent teachers within these fields, possessing a wide range of academic knowledge within the subject as well as a significant language didactic competence, all in order to meet the challenge we have been given to educate and examine the next generation of teachers.

The appointment covers research supervision, as well as teaching at both basic and advanced levels, primarily within the framework of the education programme for teachers. It is therefore preferable if the applicant has a teaching degree in combination with an English didactic research profile. Since the applicant will be considered for a range of teaching tasks, we would favour a candidate who has a broad linguistic competence and flexibility within the subject field. The teaching assignments also presuppose a good level of knowledge in Swedish.
